One of the most fascinating attributes of the band Vampire Weekend is their ability to make magnificent music with simplistic roots. Their album “Modern Vampires of the City” is no exception. The purpose of the revision was to remake the record sleeve in a way that highlights their simplistic nature. In order to do this I created a logo treatment for the album title that is modest yet decorative in order to go with theme of the album being the rich elite youth in the city. The patterns surrounding the title are what I consider a modern adaption of paisley. I wanted to maintain the bands use of the Futura typeface in the design because it has become a visual standard associated with the band.
